I recall having a good time and seeing a lot of magic, but the guy who impressed me the most was a close-up magician. I remember him doing what I now recognize as a coin matrix, and a really funny routine with a cigarette. I remember him making the cigarette vanish up his nose and pulling it out of his mouth. At one point I recall the cigarette mysteriously vanishing, and he’d ask us if we knew where the cigarette went. He’d smile and a small amount of smoke would come out of his mouth. I thought it was the most magical and funny thing my young eyes had ever seen. After the show, I remember seeing this magician doing this same trick in the bar to a small crowd, and the group was laughing and having a great time. I thought he was the coolest magician I had ever seen. I never learned this magician’s name. I remember thinking he looked a bit like Dennis Quaid, in my eyes anyway. I was new to magic at the time, still in the slum magic mode, so this whole world was new to me. Unfortunately, it would not be until a couple of decades later that I would get more serious with magic and start to learn many of the faces in the magic world. My memory from back then is fuzzy, but I’ve been wondering: Could this have been Whit Hayden? Thanks, Ross [/quote]
